The Pride Center works to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ people through:

- Referrals, individual advocacy, and navigation around medical care, mental health, housing, legal, and social services;
- Advocacy to address discrimination, close service gaps, and make change.
We envision and manifest an abundant world where LGBTQ+ people of all ages are safe, pursuing their dreams and goals, and held by a strong, vibrant community.
The Pride Center is the only organization in Rockland County whose sole mission is improving the lives of LGBTQ+ people. We serve people from throughout the Hudson Valley and Northern New Jersey.
The Pride Center building is closed for much-needed renovations to increase our capability for serving the community in 2024. In the meantime, all our support groups and services are continuing with no interruption in service.

LGBTQ+ Youth Program & Family Support
The Pride Center’s Youth Program and Family Support Services provide a web of community care and healing that centers the needs of our most vulnerable community members.
Youth in middle and high school meet twice a week for a free, supervised afterschool program. This in-person healing and empowerment space provides dinner, mental health resources, tutoring, opportunities to socialize, and holistic support in both English and Spanish. Consistent engagement in this program is proven to increase high school graduation rates, reduce hospitalizations for mental health emergencies, and decrease risk-taking behaviors.
The Pride Center’s youth team also provides one-on-one support for families of LGBTQ+ young people in English and Spanish. From advocacy at school to space to process a young person’s journey, the Pride Center is here to meet families where they are.
For questions or to learn more, contact Alex Francisco, Director of Youth & Young Adult Services, at email@example.com or (845) 353-6300.
